Laherte Frères 'Les 7'

Bottle

Composition

The current bottling was disgorged by hand in January 2018. A single-parcel field blend, Les 7 is made from a tiny plot of vines in Chavot which is co-planted with all possible seven grape varieties of Champagne. The parcel was planted by Thierry Laherte in 2003, making use of the heirloom vines: Fromenteau, Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc as well as the three main grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. These seven varieties are harvested and pressed together and the wine is produced using a perpetual, or continuous reserve, stretching back to 2005. Each year the blend is roughly 60% of the new vintage wine (2015 for this bottling) with 40% of the reserve, meaning that this release spans the harvests of 2005 – 2015.

Taste

A super complex, fleshy and savoury (peppery, nutty) wine.

Food match

Crispy skin wild barramundi fillets, roast pumpkin with melted butter, pistachio and macadamia nut crush and pickled pumpkin shavings.
